Yoga and Art Retreat / Autumn Equinox

  • Surrey Art School RH5 5DL (map)

Be like a tree. Stay Grounded. Connect to your roots. Turn over a new leaf. Bend before you break. Enjoy your unique natural beautyKeep growing - Joanne Rapits

Come down to the woods with us for a magical experience inspired by the wonders of the beautiful woodland at our stunning retreat site in the heart of the Surrey Hills.

The focus of this full day retreat is to ground ourselves - in a calm space that will help us reconnect to our core purpose -  and for this we are using the trees as inspiration.

Over the course of the day you will take part in two workshops:

The first - a tree inspired yoga class that will help you to draw your energy back down to the ground and help you find stability and strength in your yoga practice. We will be awakening and activatingthe Muldhara or root chakra - the body's most primal and fundamental energy centre associated with instinct, survival and safety and closely connected to the earth and nature.

The second - a tree inspired art workshop where you'll be creating your own 'tree spirit' that will be installed on a tree of your choosing at the site. We'll then be using fallen leaves to create some crisp, detailed monoprints using a vegetable base printing ink. Finally we'll build a mindful fire and share our wishes and dreams for the season by adding a log to the fire.

As usual we'll be providing a warming and hearty vegetarian lunch from the outdoor kitchen and will be dining fire-side whilst chatting and warming our cockles

We'll also be inviting back Magnolia Tree therapies to offer another FREE REFLEXOLOGY taster session - this one using pressure points on the hands and feet to re-energise and balance the body.

Expect a warming gathering of like-minded people, where you can make a bit of time to be creative but also to reflect and reframe in preparation for the Autumn season. You'll also get a screen-printed goodie bag to take away on the day!
